    Flip the paper over and fold the top two corners in towards the fold in the paper.

    Fold the pointed end of the paper in towards the fold at the centre again.

  • Step 5

    Repeat the step above with the other side of the paper.

    Fold the paper in half at the centre fold again.

  • Step 7

    Create a wing by folding the square end of the paper down on itself.

  • Step 8

    Repeat the step above with the paper on the other side of the fold. You should now have two wings.

  • Step 9

    Flatten the fold in the centre and wings so it becomes crisp and flat.

    Open up the wings so they stand up.

  • Step 11

    Fold the front tip of your aeroplane up to create a wind breaker.
